This study was aimed to test our hypothesis about dopamine (DA) synthesis by non-DAergic neurons expressing individual complementary enzymes of the DA synthetic pathway in cooperation, i.e. L-dihydroxyphenylalanine (L-DOPA) synthesized in tyrosine hydroxylase (TH)-expressing neurons is transported to aromatic L-amino acid decarboxylase (AADC)-expressing(More)
The performed study was aimed at checking our hypothesis that the developing brain is a source of L-dihydroxyphenylalanine (L-DOPA), a precursor of dopamine in the total circulation system. At the initial stage, the L-DOPA concentration in peripheral blood was analyzed at the 18th and 21st embryonal days (E18 and E21), at the 3rd postnatal day (P3), and at(More)
